Chelsea captain John Terry is wanted by Qatari side Lekhwiya SC, according to the Daily Star.

The 33-year-old former England skipper signed a new one-year contract at Stamford Bridge in May.

However, Lekhwiya have apparently contacted Terry’s representatives to see if the London-born centre-back might fancy a big-money move to the Middle East.

Lekhwiya, who were formed in 2009, won the Qatar Stars League last season.

They play at a 10,221-capacity stadium in Doha and are managed by former Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup.

It is thought that Terry is keen to see out his new Chelsea deal, but that he may consider a move to Lekhwiya next summer if Laudrup is still in charge.

Terry started 34 Premier League games last season and was solid as ever. He was only dribbled past on eight occasions.

However, he is likely to feature less frequently this term, with Kurt Zouma, a 19-year-old signing from Saint-Etienne, preparing to challenge for a place in Jose Mourinho’s first XI.

Terry made his Chelsea debut back in 1998 and he has gone on to play in 622 first-team games for the Blues, scoring 57 goals.

Prior to his retirement from international football in 2012, Terry won 78 senior caps for England, netting six times.
